X1 Carbon Gen 3 (Type 20BS, 20BT) Laptop (ThinkPad) second battery missing. W10 Pro

2016-05-12, 11:22 AM

My X1 Gen 3 with W10 Pro - already upgraded 1/2 year ago without problems.

But, recently the system lost the second battery.

 

Tools like Lenovo Settings just show 1 battery (main).

The second seems to be not recognised any more.

Also the time the Laptop can be used is nearly half as before.

 

Any hints?

Hello, Funnyflyer

x1c Gen3 is equipped by single internal battery, by design.
The quote from the platform specification (PSREF):
Battery type - Integrated Lithium Polymer 8-cell (50Wh) RapidCharge battery

Details:

The 2nd battery in the laptop is just RTC one.

Hi Funnyflyer,

 

You can try the reset hole, in bottom of machine.

 

first, shutdown computer, then unplug the AC adapter, and then flipped the machine, you can see a small circular hole, Insert a needle keep 10s. last, re-power on your computer, and watching it can normal charge or not.

 

This operation will not be lost data in HDD, don't worry about it.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

re-edit:

 

oh, jesus! I didn't notice X1 Carbon ONLY has one battery. I'm so sorry.

x220forme said is right!
